  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup chopped celery leaves
  • 1 small onion, quartered
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine

How to Make It

  1. Place sweetbreads in a medium mixing bowl; cover with water. Set aside to soak for 1 hour. Drain well; remove and discard white membrane.

  2. Combine sweetbreads, water, celery leaves, onion, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a medium Dutch oven. Bring to a boil. Cover; reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes.

  3. Remove sweetbreads, and cut into serving-size pieces; set aside. Strain broth, and reserve 1 cup. Discard vegetables and remaining broth.

  4. Combine flour and remaining salt and pepper. Dredge sweetbreads in flour; set aside.

  5. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add sweetbreads; cook over low heat 10 minutes or until browned, turning as necessary. Remove sweetbreads; drain. Reserve pan drippings. Transfer sweetbreads to a warm serving platter.

  6. Pour reserved 1 cup broth into pan drippings. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thickened and bubbly. Serve gravy with sweetbreads.
